We loved this cruise

This is a nice sized boat with tons of little quiet areas to sit and read, play cards or have a cocktail . The comedians were funny and the shows were pretty good. We were on the 7th deck with an extended balcony ...

Overall, good cruise, but lacking in many aspects.

Background - I have been on three cruises on the Norwegian Dawn, so, this is my only point of reference. This was my first cruise on Carnival and my first cruise with my kids. Our ages - 5, 8, 9, 23, 33, 35, and ...
